Islamic State (ISIS) asserts responsibility for Shiite mosque blast in Saudi Arabia

According to Washington Post; the Islamic State (ISIS) said Friday that it was behind a blast that killed or wounded scores of worshipers at a Shiite mosque in Saudi Arabia, marking the first time the militant group has claimed an attack in the oil-rich kingdom and raising fears of an expanding sectarian conflict in the region.

There was no immediate comment from Saudi authorities on the Islamic State’s assertion of responsibility, which was carried in written and audio statements distributed by accounts linked with the Islamic State on Twitter.
